Finland Doubles length of Student Residence permits

Policy Indications

In a bid to encourage them to work or start businesses in the country, Finland is implementing a European Union directive that will double the length of its residence permits for students and researchers from outside the EU.

Scheduled to come into force on May 15, 2018, the new regulations will see existing permits extended from one year to two years, and up to a maximum of four. It will let students not only to seek work or start a business but also to complete on-the-job training and also do volunteering “within the scope of the EU’s voluntary programmes”. 

The new legislation will also have provisions for intra-EU mobility, meaning students will be permitted to study or engage in research in Finland if another EU member state grants them a residence permit.
